NASCAR iRacing Series

Thursday Fixed- New Hampshire

Justin- P33, made it to about half way. i suck again stun out on the out side lane my fault hit just right and junked my car.

Friday Open – New Hamshpire

  • Mike -.  P dqd out. Lap 56. I couldn’t miss anything.
  • David – p2 top split.  Broadcasted.  Lot of dirty driving in this race.
  • Rochette P14 i hate NH and will always hate this track i dont remember what i did that how much this track sucks
  • Donnie – P26, This was the worst

Saturday Fixed- Justin -p6, ran with Mr. tom. He always has good strat. took it easy the first half stayed near the back got a 10x with no damage so that was disappointing. I did spin out on the outside i do that at least once a race Just stayed in it to the end cycled to the front. 5 lap run went from p9 to p6

Sunday Open

  • Hall – p wrecked.  Dumped on lap 1, car sucked from that point on.  Then caught up in someone else recovering from avoiding a wreck.
  • Donnie – P9

Wednesday Open: Pocono

  • Mike- p 17- what is run in fourth on the final green white checker got dive, bombed in taken out and moved to the rear of the pack. 
  • David – p wrecked on lap seven on the damn straight.  Over drove trying to get back and self spun the car. I’m done driving people clean
  • Justin – p dont know , ran top 10 the whole race 6 to go a car came across mikes nose then spun up and got me. Race Over
  • Chris – P18 – We have a new 7 week old baby racer at home. Not getting much seat time and it shows. 
  • Stephen louallen- wrecked out
  • Tom -p18
  • Tyler – P27- Caught in a wreck on lap one as the dive bombing began early. Regrouped and fixed the car. Had a great set as the team made a few adjustments. Shout out to Kyle on the main set and Joe with the in race adjustments. Car was wicked fast and fun to drive. Contact possibly a net code on white to put my top 15 car back in 27th. Frustrated with the result but just glad to be fast. 

Thursday Open  

  • David – p 15 top split up and down race, fell to the back early cause of a series of 3 wrecks that didn’t bring out a caution.  I slowed, most didn’t and a guy turned across my nose.  Later trying to work way back up, another multi accident situation, 3 or the 4 wrecks don’t bring out a caution.  I don’t back out, fail to miss, but not severe damage, stay out, gain a lot of track position over other hurt cars, and finish 15th.
  • Mike – was running bit with 12 to go. They beat getting on pit row that I can’t decide and I hit the barrels for minutes damage.

Rochette P16 been awhile.since i raced on a thursday. Unlike my dominate win last year in the Dorito shaped track today i was getting slammed bammed and shammed whole race. Was running 9th on thr white when guys wanted to wreck on the back and i got ran over
